Abraham Ben Moses, also known as Saifuddin Ibrahim, is a well-known former Muslim and Christian apologist in Indonesia. He was active in Internet evangelism and debates with Muslim groups.
Abraham, 53, was arrested on Dec. 5, 2017, after a video showing him sharing his faith with a Muslim taxi driver was widely circulated. In the video, he can be heard speaking with the taxi driver about the Prophet Muhammad’s teachings on marriage. He can also be heard asking the driver to convert to Christianity. Shortly afterward, Indonesia’s second largest Islamic organization filed a complaint against the evangelist, citing his Internet evangelism as a basis for blasphemy charges. Abraham, who is from Tangerang, Java, faces the possibility of five years in prison if convicted.
